Of course, a natural extension of this 2001 prototype is to do it for all years.

but Siggraph has only been asking permission for the last 3 years, so a lot depends on getting contributors from earlier years to grant permission.

And it needs to be easy to opt-in, so that no large rights clearance is required.

I also think you put all 25 yrs up.
The question is why's it taking so long? Are we going to have to wait 25 yrs???

Unfortunately, I believe that this project is currently dormant, and will probably be the total amount of SIGGRAPH videos for the foreseeable future. If there are any changes, I'm sure someone will reply to this post, though.

Would the conference materials be appended to the animations as well?

the metadata from the submission forms (name, company, contact info, credits, synopsis, etc.) would be attached, but probably not much else.

At some point we expect to be able to empower the owner of the piece to edit the metadata.

What does it take to access all the siggraph material listed as available?
I have only been able to view four.

The entire collection will be made public in about 10 days.

I really think you should put up atleast the last 10 years, but 25 years would be interesting. Some of the current ones are quite beautiful and magnificent (Anjyu is an example of what raw cpu time can do).

Actually, I would *love* to see all 25 years made available. I'd definitely contribute financially to this (will there be a PayPal account set up?)

I'd be extremely interested in seeing some of the first early examples of CGI, especially some of the University of Utah's and Information International Inc's (Triple-I) works from the late 70's.

Ahh, back when it took months/years to render an animation, and then it had to be written to tape or film a frame at a time (usually a frame every half-hour or more, depending on the CPU's speed)!

I too think you should definitely put up as much as is possible from the last 25 years! Would be really interesting!!
